Just finished up an article that is going live at 9am EST tomorrow (can you guess which?). Turned out to be a fairly good product for the targetted platform, though you'll have to get the full details in the morning. I just feel lucky this is the first time I have gotten an NDA'd article done before 3am or so in a long time!
Another long day for me to catch up on those reviews I promised you, but for now good night!

Over this past weekend, actually from Wednesday until Sunday night, I have done nothing except move people. One of my good friends bought a condo, and we moved what few things he had furnture-wise on Wednesday in what turned out ot be only a single day job. My mom also moved this weekend, and that was quite a different story. I started organizing a somewhat-packed 4 bedroom house on Thursday morning, into Friday and to Saturday afternoon. Then the heavy lifting starting Saturday evening and went on until Sunday at about 6pm. A big hearty thanks goes out to my f

Still plugging away at two seperate test setups trying to get them far enough along that I don't feel like I failed the entire day to complete something. If anyone has any skills writing some complex Windows scripting to help me with some more automated testing than I already have, please email me! Anything you want can be yours! :) It looks tomorrow will be pretty busy as well as I have to send a couple parts BACK to where they came in time for overnight shipping, which means by 5:30pm here. Everything needs to be done by then, so sleep will come at the bottom

It's a Monday night and I've been sitting in my office pretty much non stop since 10:30am. Anyone who said the life of an online reviewer was all glam and glory, is sadly mistaken. But at least I have all the comforts of home here, so I can't complain too much.
I've been trying to mix up the article content that I am writing, getting away from just motherboard reviews and trying to branch out into newer, more exciting and different PC items. The DFI 855 Pentium M article was the first in that department

It has been a stressful couple of weeks for me here; both on the site and off the site. As I mentioned before, I am building a house in Florence, KY, to which I will hopefully move sometime this summer.

If you didn't know who Billy Wilson was, then you weren't into gaming. If you never went to VoodooExtreme.com in its hayday, then you didn't know what you were talking about. News reached me today that he passed away at the age of 33. Wow, really makes you think about your own life, doesn't it?
I talked with Billy numerous times over the years, and in conclusion, I'll leave you with a portion of an email that just shows what kind of humor this guy brought to the industry. :)

Well, if you are here already you no doubt have seen the changes we made tonight to the entire PC Perspective website. The forums have had a preview of this new design for some time, but it has taken us quite a long time to work out all the bugs and kinks with the site formatting to get it where we were ready to present it to you all. Before I get into the new features and what has changed in the new PC Perspective v2.0, I'd like to take this chance to publicly and completely thank Joe White (The Wise One

I am sitting in my hotel room in downtown San Francisco ready for the upcoming spring 2005 IDF show at the Moscone Center. Intel is planning on showing off their plans for multi-core processors (notice they are NOT calling it dual-core any more...) as well as their partnership with NVIDIA in the form of the nForce4 for Intel chipset that is going to be announced very soon. I'll post more on the show as I get it, keep a close watch on the front page for any breaking news I post from the floor!

If you have been following the site at all this year, you'll have noticed that since the last day in January, my name has not been attached to any articles. My sincere thanks go to Jon and Lee for keeping some fresh content on PC Perspective. Of course, this is not to say I haven't been working at all in these past two weeks, just that it isn't "overt" work that I am doing. The grunt work that needs doing is getting done, and thanks to Joe, very soon we should have that new design I promised a couple months back. I am really looking forward to it.
Get notified when we go live!
